Glassdoor – helping people everywhere find jobs

Glassdoor also allows users to anonymously submit and view salaries as well as search and apply for jobs on its platform.

The company is headquartered in Mill Valley, California, with additional offices in Chicago, Dublin, London, and Sao Paulo.

The company was cofounded in 2007 by Tim Besse, Robert Hohman, and Expedia founder Rich Barton, who served as the company’s Chairman.

The idea came from a brainstorming session between the two of them, when Hohman relayed the story of accidentally leaving the results of an employee survey on the printer while working at Expedia — when the two began to think about what would have happened if the results had gotten out into the public.

The two hypothesized that if the material had indeed been revealed publicly, it could have been a service to those looking to make career decisions.

In 2018, the company was acquired by the Japanese firm, Recruit Holdings, for US$1.2 billion.
